Soil Reuse: State Information Resource

NEWMOA's Waste Site Cleanup and Solid Waste Programs are working together to share information on the management of excess soil for reuse. Construction, utility, brownfields, and waste site cleanup projects can generate quantities of excess soil that cannot be reused at the project site and can contain contaminants at levels that are detectable, but much below those that would qualify them as hazardous waste.

This website facilitates the sharing of information related to excess soil management. The information compiled here was provided by each state, and should not be considered complete. Users are advised to contact the applicable state(s) to determine if there have been recent updates or if there is additional information. See Soils Reuse Workgroup to find state contacts and their e-mail addresses.

Contact Jennifer Griffith,  for more information.
